I just spoke with someone who has cruised often, but not with Princess. She told me that if you want to purchase a pop card, EACH person in your cabin is required to buy one also. She said this is to avoid one person getting the pop for several people. This contradicts info I've been given from Princess passengers on this site. Can someone confirm the accurate information for me? We leave 04/27.
I just got off the Grand 2 weeks ago and it is per person and not per cabin. Basically when you get on the ship they will have stations set up (just about everywhere) and when you sign up they charge your card $22.50 ($20 + 15% tip). They put a sticker on your card which all you have to do is show to get a drink.
My sister and I used our cards last year, no problem. But if you order two sodas, they will ask to see two cards. Of course, I've read there are sneaky ways around this, but I'm not going to quibble about $20. It's not like I'm not going to drink that amount, so I don't mind paying for it.
we have sailed princess twice,did not know about soda card on first cruise but with 18y/o son going on second we did find out.my wife and i did not get one but we got one for our son and we were not made to get one.my wife later in cruise did get one for herself.we are booked again for 4-19-04 for 10day and sure both will get them again
